Writer's Block: Good morning, star shine

On spaceflights, astronauts are awakened by songs of their choosing. What song would you pick?


I think that today i would pick "Secrets" by One Republic...it's a really good song and i can't seem to get it out of my head.

Another Update on Grammy

So i don't know what i have said since the last time. A lot has happened. She's been in and out of the hospital a lot. The heart surgery went well, but then she fell and broke her hip. They had surgery for that, which she made it through. I haven't really gone to see her for a week or two. Honestly i'm kind of scared to. I hate seeing her in so much pain. Everytime i go i feel like i'm saying goodbye and everytime i see her she's just so out of it...I do plan to go see her soon. Maybe i'll go on Easter sunday or monday.

Right now she's in the hospital for something to do with her heart again but the details were hazy. i'm not exactly sure what it was for.

Anyway, thanks for the prayers. I really do appriciate it. You guys are wonderful. :)

I'll update you again when i get another chance.

Update on my Grammy

So today i went to see Grammy. I think she looked the best today. Well since she's had the heart attack that is. She was walking a tiny bit and actually sat and tried to play cards with my sisters and I. We tried to play go fish. When we got there though, we have to put on these smock like robes...she was so funny because she asked me "where did you get such a pretty dress" I told her i had to wear it and that i got it right outside the room. I said see, Dad has one on too. My dad posed. it was funny. We talked about when Dad was little a bit...i was so glad that she remembered! She remembered my dad taking string and putting it all over the basement, practically making a web with it. She remembered how she had to claw around through it to get around the basement. it was funny. She remembered a time that my dad was being bad and shot her in the butt with a little cap gun. My dad said he remembered how mad she got at him and she laughed. It made her laugh and i think she really remembered it.

Grammy might have a quadruple bypass heart surgery. It's really risky with all the things she has wrong with her. Her kidney function isn't as good as it should be-- her heart isn't as good as it should be either AND she has diabetes now too. So this surgery we don't know yet if they will go through with it or not...but Pop (my grandfather) is leaning towards it and so is grammy. they have only talked to the surgeon though, not the cardiologist. So really i don't know what is going to happen yet. Please keep her in your prayers! I love my Grammy so much!!!

Scary Misreable Valentine's Day

Today was Valentine's Day.

My grandmom, Grammy as we call her hasn't been feeling so good. My sister spent the night over her house last night...and this morning i called her, to let her know i was going to come over to visit, since we thought Grammy was really sick and honestly we don't know how long she has, i wanted to spend time with her.

Well when i called, My sister answered the phone. She said it would really be a good idea if i text my dad to tell him he needed to come home from church and get over to see Grammy. She was getting worse. She, Grammy, wanted him there.

We ended up calling 911 to take her to the hospital. I called out of work, much to the disappointment of my coworker whom i felt horrible for asking to find someone to do my shift...or to do it herself as she had needed to be off by 3. The ambulance came and took her away. I'd never seen that happen before and i felt frightened. Grammy looked so tiny and fragile...like such a little person. She didn't look like the strong happy Grammy i remember spending so much time playing with me as a child...yet they were one in the same.

I know i've cried throughout the day...but more so than that, i was angry.

They took her to the hospital and my sisters and i waited in the emergency room lounge area for any news. My mom and dad came and went taking turns to go back and forth to see Grammy. Pop stayed with her the whole time.

Eventually when my mom came to let my dad go back, he suggested that we all go out to eat while he goes back to check on Grammy for a while. So we did.
After we ate we were sent to Grammy and Pop's house to try to pick up her meds and take them to the doctor. We didn't have the right key so we ended up driving back to the hospital, waiting for dad. After mom was allowed to go back, he sent us home saying we should get some rest while he went out to go and get he meds himself.

we did that. i had to meet him at the giant to get some of mellie's things that she had left over grammy's. when he and i talked, i cried. i was surprised he didn't yet. after all, it was his mother.

I went home and got on skype to talk to my boyfriend. i was pretty mean and grumpy. he prayed with me for grammy, which..i didn't feel too keen on, although i should have been. He told me, God always answers prayers, which now makes me realize that yes it's true he does...we just don't always get the answers we want.

well a few hours later, my dad called. he told me Grammy had had a massive heart attack and she had some kind of kidney failure. we don't know yet how severe the kidney failure is. i freaked out and told my sisters...and i cried.

a little later my dad called again. he told me they had put her on some kind of meds and that grammy was much more alert than she had been before. she was eating and talking and even grumpy that she was in the hospital. I was happier. They think she was at least doing somewhat better. they do still have to find out how bad her kidney failure is but...at least for the moment she's stable and doing a little better than she had been. I love my Grammy very much. it's horribly ironic that this all happened on valentines day...the day that you are supposed to love. it's terrible to see the ones you love suffer on the day you are supposed to celebrate that you love them.

please pray for my grandmom. i'm really scared for her.

Mess

Writer's Block: The supper club

Which persons, living or dead, would you invite to a fantasy dinner party? What topics would you discuss? Are there any subjects would you avoid? Lastly, what kind of food would you serve?


If i could invite anyone i wanted to a dinner party, i'd say i'd probably invite my grandfather and grandmother who passed away when i was young, and my living grandparents, for starters. I'd probably invite my boyfriend's family and my family, obviously my boyfriend...um, (this is getting tough..) two of the ladies i work with, Sonny and Cher (no real reason for that one...i just have always liked them.) I'd also probably invite Jim Henson, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Richard Dean Anderson, and...ugh i can't decide on anyone else for now...that's good enough to start with. :)

We would probably discuss anything ranging from how to cook, to how to make a good movie. I'd try to avoid political discussions, but with SOME people that would probably be hard (but those people i'd want to invite anyway, simply because i'd feel bad for not inviting them) maybe stay away from religious discussions, or at least don't let them get too deep.

Oh, and i'd definitely be serving italian food! My grandparents would love it!

My dream from last night

I woke up this morning from an interesting dream. It wasn't the normal dreams that you get, you know...falling, flying, naked in public, (lol, that would suck)...although frankly i've only had the flying dream maybe once, and the falling dream i've had a few times, but not very often.

This dream was so vivid it felt real. I dreamed that i was a mother (probably a few years older than i am now, b/c everyone else i knew in the dream was slightly older). I was married to my boyfriend and we had four children. Unfortunately i can only remember two of their names from the dream: Charlie and Karen. I'm pretty sure I had another boy and another girl too, either that or two more boys.

Anyway, in the dream we were somewhere, i assume that wasn't far from home. We were out. Charlie went missing. I can't remember what happened to lose him, but i do know he was gone. I felt like a horrible mother. I know we left at least two of the other three with my father. Then we went wandering around in the snow freaking out looking for Charlie. The snow didn't feel cold though. Maybe it wasn't real snow? I'm not sure, this was a dream after all; but we kept looking.

It felt like forever till we found Charlie, and when we did, he was by an old shed that my father tore down years ago when I was little, hiding in between it and my old swing set. He had a great big grin on his face when we found him, i guess because he thought it was a giant game of hide and seek.

All i remember was that when my boyfriend picked him up he looked so happy and relieved, that i could almost feel it coming from him myself. Then i got to hold him...it felt so real.
Out of nowhere my father, Karen, and the other two children came up and got in the action. My boyfriend took Charlie, i guess because he didn't want him out of his site, and i picked up Karen and the other little girl (yes i did have another boy and girl in the dream, not two boys like i thought) and my father held the other boy.

It felt so real, i kind of wish it were. We looked very happy.

Astrology Celeb Compadibility + me = funny

So I'm a Taurus, right? Well again i've been bored for the past 3 hours (obviously since this will be my 3rd post in, what...ten minutes? lol) I've been on astrology.com for quite a bit of that time.

Aparently I'm compatable with: Orlando Bloom, Keanu Reeves, Jude Law, Jack Black, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Patrick Dempsey, Richard Gere, Sean Hayes, Toby Maguire, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, and Vin Diesel.

I'm not supposedly compatable with these guys, either that or it would be just friends or a fling...supposedly. (LOL!): Johnny Depp, Seth Green, Elijah Wood, Hugh Jackman, Veggo Mortensen, Will Smith, Aston Kutcher, Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Justin Timberlake, and Russell Crowe.

So yeah, funky list. :p

~AG~

P.S. I am supposed to be compatible with my boyfriend's sign...so that's a good thing, if i really believed in astrology. (not dissin' anyone who might believe in it, just saying that i don't.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

Hey all,
Well at least i'm keeping up with remembering to check my LJ...well i have for the past few weeks anyways. Happy New Year!

My new years went out with a miserable bang. I don't know why all my stress hits me at once. let's just say, that there were somethings that i've wanted to do, and plans that i've made, that have had to suffer lately. sometimes i feel like my life has turned into a soap opera...*eye roll* (blah)

There is one good thing though, well...just one that i can think of right now anyway. That is simply this: it's a new year, and although the old one ended badly..and this one didn't exactly start wonderfully, it's got a whole year to make up for it.

Anywhos, Happy New Year to everybody on LJ!
